* ''Film/SpaceJam'' stars Michael Jordan as himself, and covers his brief retirement from basketball, failed attempt at a baseball career, and return to basketball only a short time later. Of course, the bulk of the film is spent on a [[SarcasmMode minor]] bit of creative liberty suggesting he regained his passion for basketball by player-coaching the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes to victory in a high-stakes match against alien slavers, but the parts that focus solely on Jordan play the trope quite straight. For an extra bit of RealitySubtext, the practice he got during the making of the film helped sharpen his skills for the very uretirement depicted in the film's final moments.
